Parquetry Cowl

The Parquetry Cowl is knit in the round using two coordinating colors. Garter stitch and brioche stitches alternate to form a checkerboard pattern, like a parquet floor. The brioche stitches are easy; they give a very gentle introduction to brioche knitting.

Parquetry is a quick and simple knit, perfect for gift giving. Even if you’re the recipient!

Knit cowl with cat in reflection

I knit mine with two skeins of Hazel Knits Lively DK, a bouncy and round yarn that is a pleasure to knit. You could also knit this with worsted weight yarn; just adjust your needles to make a fabric you like.

I designed this cowl for The Fiber Gallery for the 2019 Puget Sound Yarn Tour, and now it has come back to me. I hope you enjoy knitting it as much as I did!
